Direct from a sell out season in the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Amity Dry brings her hit new cabaret show 39 FOREVER to Chapel off Chapel this May.
39 FOREVER is an honest, insightful and laugh out loud comedy about ageing in an image obsessed world, where social media, photo-shop and Botox have forever changed the quest for eternal youth. From her first childhood home perm to the last year of her 30’s Amity explores the pressure women face to stay forever young and questions whether 40 really is the new 30 (or if that’s just something people say to make them feel better.)
39 FOREVER received 5 star reviews for its Adelaide Fringe season, selling out 12 shows and adding 5 more dates due to popular demand. Both critics and audiences fell in love with Amity’s witty and honest take on ageing;
‘She is as sparkling and glittery as her beautiful gown and her voice is clear, crisp and strong with some notes that Streisand and Midler would kill for.’ – Glam Adelaide
‘From the anxious, eager voice of a young Amity to the strong, I-am-woman-hear-me-roar voice of an Amity embracing her upcoming 40s, she never ceases being able to punctuate her narrative with dry, self-deprecating one-liners and reflections that spark laughter and introspection throughout the theatre space.’ – The Adelaide Show
‘Amity Dry has done it again with 39 Forever. (She) takes you from laughter to tears and back again and by the end of the night you will be up singing and dancing along.’ – Broadway World
‘In one for the girls, clever comedic songstress and thoroughly charming Amity Dry traverses life from childish dreams of being “old”, to the reality of being 30-something. Grab your bubbles and work it into a night out with the girls.’ – The Advertiser
Amity Dry is perhaps best known for her role on the hit reality TV show THE BLOCK and for her top 10 album THE LIGHTHOUSE however she is making a name for herself internationally as a musical theatre writer and composer to watch. Her original musical MOTHER, WIFE & THE COMPLICATED LIFE has received rave reviews both nationally and internationally and most recently staged a 43 show Australian tour. It’s played at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, the United Nations, 54 Below New York and was translated into Norwegian for a season in Norway. Later this year it is being work-shopped in London for a potential UK tour, with support from a London based production team.
39 FOREVER is playing at Chapel off Chapel in Prahran.
